The 2019-20 NFL regular season is in the books and the 12 lucky teams that are still alive in the hunt for Super Bowl LIV are beginning to look ahead at the postseason. For the 20 teams that did not reach the NFL Playoffs, however, it is time to look ahead at the upcoming NFL Draft where they can plug holes that will improve their rosters for next season.
Following the conclusion of Week 17, we now know the official draft order for the top 20 picks of the 2020 NFL Draft.
The No. 1 overall selection — which is currently projected to be LSU Tigers star quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow — belongs to the Cincinnati Bengals. The move would bring Burrow, a former Ohio State Buckeye, back to Ohio.
Sitting behind Cincinnati is the Washington Redskins, who appear to be in a position to land Ohio State Buckeyes star pass rusher Chase Young at No. 2.
Rounding out the top five picks are the Detroit Lions, New York Giants, and Miami Dolphins.
